What are the benefits of Physiotherapy at Medical on Miami?
The most common reason people find themselves in front of a physiotherapist is because of pain. Pain can arise from a large range of medical conditions or specific injuries and naturally people want to minimise this discomfort as much as possible. Physiotherapy can assist with pain reduction by utilising soft tissue mobilisation, taping or joint manipulation while restoring muscle strength during the various stages of an injury.
Decreased mobility is a common complaint for many people and can occur for many reasons. It may be triggered by exercise, injury, lack of physical activity or movement or even neurological issues. The experienced team of physiotherapist at Medical on Miami can help improve your mobility in all these cases. The treatments may involve regular exercise or hands on treatment techniques to improve and maintain your mobility into the future.
Surgeries can be extremely costly procedures and sometimes people want to know if there are other options to treat their condition. This is where physiotherapy can help. Physiotherapy can assist people to avoid surgery through specific strengthening of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints around the site of pain making you stronger and avoiding the need for surgery.
In some cases, surgery is unavoidable or you may choose to opt the surgical pathway. If this is the case many surgeons recommend going through physiotherapy prior to your operation. This is to ensure the best possible outcomes for your surgery as well as decrease post-operative recovery times by being stronger before the operation.
Physiotherapy isn’t just for those with an injury. Many people throughout their life experience various pains and niggles and in a lot of cases they keep on coming back. The area most common for this can be the neck and lower back. A physiotherapist can work with you to identify the triggers for your pain and assist you with a plan to strengthen the area and preventive future flare ups.
Additionally, many high-level athletes work with physiotherapists all year round regardless of whether they have an injury or not. This process involves identifying areas or potential weakness and implementing strengthening programs to prevent future injuries. Athletes also utilise physiotherapists for maintenance throughout the season to assist with their recovery between games.
